police shoot chained dog D&D Brookie99 1 child; Fort McMurray, Alberta 1126 posts

I just seen this on the news and thought it would make a good topic for D&D. What happened was a police officer went into a yard with out a warrant looking for a friend of the owner of the home. They where accompanied by a police dog. Upon entering the yard the police dog attacked a chained dog in the yard that was barking at them from across the yard. The dog fought back and after controlling his own dog the police officer shot the chained dog claiming it was dangerous because it attacked the police dog which was already attacking the dog who was chained and couldn't get away. Im absolutely appalled by this especially since the dog was chained and was in no way a threat to the police officer or the other dog had the police dog been kept under control and stopped from attacking the home owners dog. I would sue if it was my dog. Thoughts?

Uhh... I think we're missing some information. I doubt a police officer would shoot a dog that's chain up in another yard.



Unless he felt that dog was about to break free from its chain?

Because the dog returned the attack of the K9 unit dog.

Just tried to find a link and it seems like this isn't the first time the police in that area shot a dog that was chained or behind a fence. Im still sorting through all the news articles to find the right one.

f**k THAT. I feel so strongly about animal abuse and if anyone had the balls to shoot my chained up dog I would probably go after them. Idc how vicious a dog is, if you stumble upon one chained up you have no right to decide if it lives or dies

I'm still confused.



The police dog attacked first. But the officer had time to control his canine.... THEN he shot the other dog. Who was chained up in another yard... ????

Police dogs are trained not to attack without command.



There is more to this story.

See, I thought that, too!



Much of the story doesn't make sense. Including why they had a K9 unit to begin with.

As far as I understand, k9 are treated as officers. Since the dog was fighting (back) with the k9 dog, they shot it as they would if the chained dog were to bite or attack a human officer. Also why is the dog chained up? It's against the law here to chain an animal up outside.
